In a bevy of appointments yesterday, Gov. John Carney nominated Jason Clarke as the permanent IT chief. He has been serving as the acting CIO since September, when James Collins departed for a private-sector opportunity.
Jason Clarke has been nominated to become the permanent head of the Delaware Department of Technology and Information (DTI).
Gov. John Carney made the announcement yesterday in a press release. Clarke has served as the state's acting CIO since September, when James Collins left the position after a six-year tenure for a position with Microsoft.
Clarke had been DTI's chief operating officer for more than two years when he stepped in as acting CIO. He has worked for the state of Delaware since 2007. Prior to working in public service, he was with Bank of America for several years.
The governor's press release indicated that Clarke "has helped manage an expansion of high-speed broadband service in rural Kent and Sussex counties and is leading a transition to digital government services at DTI."
